Amish Christmas Blessings: The Midwife's Christmas Surprise\A Christmas to RememberLucie's Review:

The Midwife's Christmas Surprise
Anna Zook has learned a lot from Elizabeth Miller about being a midwife, and now they share a clinic, but Anna worries that the ladies of the community will never take her seriously as a midwife.

 Elizabeth tries to encourage her, and does what she can to help her confidence. When Elizabeth's son Benjamin comes home after three years away, she welcomes him warmly and tries to play matchmaker by finding excuses for him to spend time with Anna.

Ben's return is not without plenty of challenges, he must overcome the resentment that same with his leaving in the first place. He works hard to prove that he has changed and that he's in it for the long haul. I liked his and Anna's dialog as they come to terms with what happened in the past and become reacquainted. Ben has a way of knowing just when Anna needs a hand, and he shows up just in time.

Overall, a sweet tale of Christmastime second chances at love, and mending family ties. I liked how Ben makes an intention choice to prove himself to everyone back home, and to heal old wounds.

A Christmas to Remember
When Amos Stoltzfus finds a young girl named Polly trying to steal bread from his shop, he gives it to her along with some peanut butter, and follows her home. He discovers that her companion, Linda, is not well, so he offers a hand, taking them to stay with his mother.

Linda is recovering from a head injury and memory loss, and finds it easy to be discouraged. Amos helps to cheer her up, but wonders about the wisdom of falling for a woman who doesn't even know herself what kind of woman she is.

I liked Linda, and her faith, she knows that God will reveal His will in His own time. And even though she doesn't remember everything, there are things that shine though, showing her genuine character.

I liked Amos, he is a kind man, who takes action when he sees a need.

Overall, a heartwarming love story of family and making memories at Christmastime.
